Horny toad
It is not a toad or frog, but a lizard. Its coloration serves as a camouflage. When threatened, their first defense is to remain still and hope to avoid detection. It worked, Duchess (my dog) did not notice it at all...

Check out the profile page of theronmoon, he has one as well but yours blends in much better.

I'm still trying to spot one!

Thanks, I did check the site. His horned lizard looks different, but I guess there are many different species as I was reading on line. I have seen quiet a few of these in NM.

Thanks Larry, I hope that I did not stress it too much. Tried to slow it down for taking more photos...

Thanks Dow... I sometimes wish to be able to camouflage the way they do...

I'd like to spot one of those. Do they live just in desertic zones?

I have seen several of these creatures. There are several subspecies. I believe all live in dry climates...
